Tu B’Shvat is the flagship holiday of KKL-JNF, symbolizing the eternal connection between the Jewish people and the Land of Israel and the role of KKL-JNF in developing the land throughout history – from purchasing land and planting forests to developing cutting-edge ecological projects that are making a global impact.
On Tu B’Shvat, KKL-JNF runs many events where children throughout Israel plant trees and participate in educational activities that emphasize the importance of nature and environmental awareness.
The Tu B’Shvat Caravan brings the pioneering spirit of Israel that KKL-JNF represents to tens of thousands of Jewish youth and children around the world. Participants plant trees and learn about the significance of the holiday through a Tu B’Shvat Seder run by KKL-JNF’s educational shlichim. Younger children learn about Israel’s nature and landscapes, while teenagers learn about environmental sustainability, water conservation, and Israel’s global contribution in these fields.
